We have created a new thread for these discussions at, https://www.jv-extensions.com/jv-ld-feature-requests/1777-vision-for-jv-linkdirectory-4-5-a.html and we welcome all customers to participate in this discussion.
Focus will be on directory monetization and extensibility in JV-LD 4.5. Our objective for 4.5 release will be:
Give our JV-LD customers more ways to make money using the directory
Make JV-LD more extensible, so that external plugins can be created and invoked, this extending the functionality of JV-LD to no bounds. An example of this would be a gallery or video or media plugin that can attach itself to the link detail page etc...
Please feel free to participate in the discussions, and let us know what you want in your directory!
